The psychosocial impact of being a young person with an unusual appearance

Williamson, Heidi

Authors



Abstract

Living with an unusual or different appearance as a result of a disfigurement from birth, an accident or illness can be particularly challenging for young people in today's appearance-obsessed society. Heidi Williamson explores the psychological and social experiences of adolescents with a ‘visible difference’ and considers factors that can determine how well adolescents cope with these challenges.
